K&S: I don't think it hurts as much as it is just so uncomfortable. You have to leave the speculum in the whole test so it's just comfortable to lay on your right side with something in your vagina lol. I think I was mostly scared becaus they wouldn't allow my wife to come back with me. So I was there naked and cold and nervous. But the actually procedure I felt slight like period cramps when they released the liquid but I didn't have blocked tubes so it didn't really hurt you can just feel it run out a little and that was awkward for me but I'm sure they have seen worse lol. After words my tummy just felt a little crampy and I went back to work so I was fine. I also heard traumatic experiences but I don't know if that was because their tubes were blocked or not. I think there is more anxiety about going to get it done then actually having it done. They say it takes 30 mins but I don't even think it took 15 everything was in place. I'm still hoping this is your month though but I would t worry if you have to do the HSG ;)

K&K- How exciting! I cannot wait to hear what your number are.
K&S- I'm sorry this cycle isn't looking good. Stay positive until AF actually shows. As for the HSG, my GF had some cramping for a couple of days but she said it wasn't too bad.
Babee2015- Good luck with the appointment.
Hope everyone else is doing well.

AFM, I have had a really crappy week. One of my friends and her partner are going through a tough time. She went to the hospital with severe preeclampsia and had an emergency c-section at 25 weeks. Their little girl is in the NICU and fighting. She came into the world so early and only weighs 1 pound. It amazes me how strong and positive my friends are. They are just in love with their little girl.
My GF tested on Monday which was 13dpiui #1 and it was bfn. She said if AF isn't here by Saturday then she would test again. AF was due for her yesterday but when she takes the progesterone she is usually a couple days late.

Hi everyone, a quick update from me. BFP with hcg of 128 @ 13dpo. Blood test again in a week to check all is well, then book in for a 7wk scan with FS after that. Very excited but keeping it low key!

Alaska23: sorry to hear about your friends, 25wks is just so small and vulnerable. Hoping and praying that their little girl pulls through.
K&S: still hoping there is a bfp for you this month or next. Good luck with the HSG, hope it is quick and painless as possible.
Babee2015: good luck with your procedure under general tomorrow - hope the results are all clear.

I will keep stalking everyone, can't wait to see some bfps in April.

K&K so happy for you guys :D :D

Kelly and Shannon I really hope AF stays away. My partner had the HSG test, the dr also said it was horrible but as speedofpain said it was just a bit uncomfortable, maybe it's good to expect the worst then it's not so bad! :D ours was also all clear though maybe it's different if there is a blockage, I was also able to stay through the whole thing which was good.

Alaska sorry to hear about the BFN :cry: and about your friends baby, she sounds very tiny :cry: I can't even imagine how stressful that would be, hope she is one of the many premmie miracles! There is a fb page called miracle babies foundation they have amazing stories and support for parents friends and families of prem and sick babies you can learn a lot from them, when they are ready they might want to have a look, hope everything works out for them :hugs:

Everything went ok today didn't get any results though which is pretty annoying! But she is recovering really well which gives me some hope that if we get to egg retrieval it won't be too traumatic! Looks like some of us will be trying April I will let you know when we have results!

Dropping in to check on everyone!

K&S I'm sorry you had another BFN and hopefully you had some late implantation and AF stays away! :) I managed to avoid the HSG test, but it was next on our list.

Alaska - Hopefully you are in the same boat!

Babee - I hope all reports are good from the procedure come out as expected.

Katrina - Congrats on the BFP!

AFM - We had our first OB appointment yesterday, it's the first dr visit in the last year that I didn't have to get undressed at all! Haha.
We got to see the tiny human in another ultrasound, it's crazy how fast it's growing. We were pretty stressed out about seeing a completely new Dr, but she was wonderful, so that helps! We don't have to go back for 5 weeks which we will hopefully be able to tell the sex by then!

I'm hoping for everyone our of this group to get some BFP's soon!! :)

Alaska23--I'm praying so hard for your friend's baby! Like Babee said there are so many miracle preemies. The NICU doctors and nurses are amazing and I hope that your friend's baby will be one of the many miracles!! A good friend of mine had a premature son last year, weighing 2.4 lbs, and after much time in NICU he was able to go home and he's now a happy & healthy boy :). Fingers crossed for your bfp too!!
Speedofpain--Thanks for the info! What a bummer they didn't let your wife come back! That definitely would've made me want to cry. I think all dr offices need to amend their rules to suit lesbians.......we do everything together!! Ha :).
Babee2015--I definitely agree that when you go in expecting the worst that the reality actually isn't too bad :). I'm so glad to hear they let you be present for it. As weird as it sounds, part of me wants them to find a blockage so at least then there would be a reason why I haven't been able to get pregnant yet. Then I could get the blockage removed, have our baby, and live happily ever after :). One of the most frustrating things so far is not knowing why. I know I just have to be patient :). I'm glad your appt went well! Sorry you didn't get any results yet. And the wait continues. I feel like no matter what step each of us are at, we're all waiting for something. Either the tww or waiting for AF to start or waiting for her to end so we can try again or waiting for doctor results or appts and baby progress. Not a fun thing for someone impatient like me! Ha :). No choice but to give in and roll with it :).I'm looking forward to your update!! And oh btw I gave in to my impatience this morning and poas.....still BFN. Ok AF, just hurry the hell up ;).
K&K--I'm so happy for the solid bfp and that your #'s are great!! :). Can't wait to follow your progress!!
Geekstomoms--Reading your updates totally gives me the goosebumps!! Only 5 more weeks and you'll know if it's a boy or a girl! That's crazy :). Sonogram pics just blow my mind. Amazing beyond words. Congratulations again! Can't wait to hear more :).

We are on to the next cycle. CD1 was Friday so probably looking at a IUI around the 9th. We picked a new donor so we are hoping this will be the difference we need. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Hey there,

Wanted to check in and see how you were all going? I haven't been in here for a while. Wonder if some people are in the middle of 2ww for April?

I had my 7 week scan yesterday and it went really well. Bubs is measuring nicely at 7weeks 3 days which was bang on. Beautiful heartbeat which is always a relief.

Wishing you all the very best of luck this round and hope there are many BFPs going around.
